Iphone Interface For Becker Cdr220

Recommended Posts

Through trial and error I learned that the Iphone will not work with the standard P.I.E. ipod interface, however Precision Interface electronics (www.PIE.com) also manufactures a Uni-pod interface that works perfectly with the iphone allowing both audio and charging from its flat pin input on the bottom of the Iphone. I used Becker's telephone and RCA wiring harnesses to power it up. If you ask for it, the Uni-pod's plug is available in black or white standard. I owe a Thank you to Orient express and Tagger for there previous Ipod related posts from which I was sent in the right direction.

Hi I havent read much on this before so excuse me if I appear dumb!

My 2000 996 has the Becker CDR22 Head unit and multi disk player in the boot. I have an iPhone too, can you when time permits detail or explian what I need to get the iphone working in the car and charging.....I was about to order a Nokia blue tooth kit for the phone and assume I will still need it, but your post sounds interesting, if I read it right.

Denis you will need to get rid of the cd changer because it uses the radios only aux. output source.

This is most likely not a big deal as your cd music should be transfered to your itunes library anyway.

You will also need,

1. Becker's AUX output to RCA wiring kit.

2. Becker's Porsche Telephone wiring kit

3. a P.I.E. Uni-pod adapter

4. Pro clips Iphone holder with swivel head

First-Remove the head unit and Plug Becker's AUX output to RCA jack in the cd charges place.

Second-splice the Unipod to the Becker phone harness and plug it into the cars phone harness. See Orient express's ipod post for wire color codes and photos. This will provide power to the Unipod.

Third-Plug the Becker AUX RCA jack into the Unipod.

Fourth- put the head unit back and hide the wires.

Its sounds more complicated than it is. Took me all of a half an hour to complete. Best of all only one plug for power and audio. With the Pro clip holster it looks very clean.

Hi

Just curious why you did your set up using the Uni pod.

Why not use the PIE cable that gives direct connection from 8 pin CD Changer input (ON CDR220)) to Ipod dock connector.http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=993

Then tap into the stray phone option cable t obtain power and ground connections ( can use Becker phone power harness cable for this)

This way you only use two cables and less $$.

By the way what was the price on the Becker Phone power harness cable?

Thanks

Sorry for the delayed response.

In order for an Iphone to communicate thur its flat pin connector and charge from the same location you must first convert the signal thru the unipod. I tried the standard RCA to flat pin set up but the geneuis at Apple intentiontionally designed the iphone not to work in most ipod docking stations. You could however use the audio output from the earphone jack and charge thru the standard flat pin but I prefer a cleaner application.
